Ph.D in Social Sciences, UCL vs Edinburgh.Watch this thread
Frankly it is a bit of silly question about Ph.D degree to other PPL.
As an international student, however, I don't have enough information for Ph.D in UK.
I have studied my MSc at SPRU (Science and Technology Policy Research Unit) in Uni.Sussex until this September, and got two offers from the Bartlett in UCL and University of Edinburgh.
The Bartlett is the school of planning department, whereas Edi, is the Science and Technology Studies (Alright, this course is closely related to my MSc). My research area focus on regional innovation and technology clusters. Both Uni., fortunately, are able to conduct my own research.
For this reason, I am just considering which uni. is a better for my academic career in terms of an international reputation and only research environment. After a Ph.D, I would like to get a job at Europe instead of my home country.
In my opinion, London has a lot of opportunities to attend diverse seminars and event such as LSE open seminar. But Edinburgh has the limitation of those seminars owing to the geographical proximity.
Regarding the supervisors, the Bartlett's professor used to joint research with my country's scholars. However, Edi' is totally unknown.
I must decide my course as soon as possible.
Can you give any advice?
Need more help on going postgrad?
Can you give me some information about how it is in there? I would like to apply for a PhD in Science an Technology Policy. Would you recommend it?
Thanks a lot!
